mike katz working out his backMike Katz is another bodybuilding legend that also appeared in the well known movie Pumping Iron. He didn’t get that much fame and the best title that he won was at the 1976 Mr. Olympia where he placed 4th in the heavyweight division. At that contest he was in his peak form. At a height of 6’1″ his competition weight was 240┬álb. and the off season weight was between 250 and 260 lb.

In that time Mike Katz along with other bodybuilders was called gay, narcissistic, muscle-bound or any of the other stereotypes that the public labeled bodybuilders with at that time but they stood tall and now bodybuilding is a great sport!

I’ve called Mike Katz a bodybuilding legend because despite the fact that he didn’t compete too much, he gave advices, training tips and was involved with bodybuilding and its great bodybuilders of the golden era all his life. Ohh and yeah Mike Katz was a gym teacher a very very long time and he loved it!
